This excellent set (last available as a Classic Jazz LP) features Al Grey on two sessions in peak form. The trombonist is the lead voice in an octet for four numbers that also feature tenorman Hal Singer, and he joins forces with tenor saxophonist Jimmy Forrest (they were both in Count Basie's band at the time) in a quintet also including pianist Tommy Flanagan for three other tunes. Grey wrote six of the seven numbers, all but one of which are blues. Grey and Forrest would soon leave Basie and team up on a regular basis until the tenor's death. Accessible and swinging music.
